Frank has successfully mediated numerous preference matters for our clients. Regardless of whether the case presents routine issues or involves complex areas of law, Frank comes to mediation well-versed in both the facts and the legal issues. He also has the ability to evaluate and manage the personalities, emotions, and underlying issues of the parties, which can be more important than the case facts or law. Accordingly, Frank has successfully helped the parties reach settlement in numerous cases for my clients, and I highly recommend him as mediator.
Frank Monaco is a first class mediator. His wealth of experience in bankruptcy and commercial litigation allows him to provide essential substantive and practical insights to parties seeking to resolve their disputes. Frank is fair, efficient and highly effective in helping parties get the job done. I would recommend him to anyone.
Frank is second to none in assessing strengths and weaknesses of a case, AND authoritatively communicating that assessment to the client. This combination makes Frank a great choice of mediator.
Nearly every case I have ever mediated with Frank has successfully settled either at mediation or shortly thereafter, for three reasons. First, his knowledge of substantive law and skills as an attorney makes him highly value added in a negotiation setting. Second, he is very effective in persuading both sides to quit posturing and steadily move toward consensus. Finally, his open and inviting personality encourages parties to be candid.
